What Do You Know About the

The "fatal funnel" is a term used for an area within the opening of a point of entry where most fatalities occur during an active threat situation. 

This graphic below breaks down the area that is defined as the "fatal funnel."

Understanding the importance of this area is extremely crucial in the event of an active shooter. 

In order to avoid placing yourself in a situation where you would be a "sitting duck," it is important to stay outside of the funnel. If possible, it is best to get as close to the point of entry as you can in order to remove yourself from the fatal area while also surprising the threat with an attack back or a disarm. 

In this video, Reflex Defense Trainer Alain Burrese breaks down the best place to protect yourself which also proves to be best place to defend yourself. 

 As Alain points out in the video above, once you have placed yourself out of the "fatal funnel," it is important to arm yourself with an improvised weapon or better yet, Reflex Protect. 

Reflex Protect is specifically built for these types of situations. Due to the 12-15 foot range that Reflex Protect has, it makes it the ideal tool to disable an active threat. 

However, if you don't have Reflex Protect, other improvised weapons should be used such as a stapler, a hole punch, or even a chair. It is ideal for these items to be heavy and solid in nature.

I’ve been at it ever since, including living and training in South Korea while studying Hapkido, in which I hold a 5th degree black belt.  My first book on self-defense was published by Paladin Press in 1996, and since then I’ve put out 11 instructional DVDS and eight more books.
